      FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — The son of a California man who choked to death during an amateur taco eating contest at a minor league baseball game is suing the event’s organizers for negligence.

      Eighteen-year-old Marshall Hutchings’ lawsuit filed Monday alleges his father, Dana Hutchings, was not made aware of the risks and danger involved in an eating competition, the Fresno Bee reported.

      The 41-year-old died after choking on tacos while competing in the contest during a Fresno Grizzlies game on Aug. 13, 2019. Participants competed to devour as many tacos as possible during a certain amount of time.

      The suit names Fresno Sports and Events, the owner of the Grizzlies.

      So there’s a certain percentage of the population there who probably thinks of tacos as some strange kind of foreign food, which would result in you going to Hell if you actually ate one. And be there twice as fast if you put any sort of sauce on it that was rated higher than “mild”.

        Except for Del Taco. I found the California variety very bland and tasteless. They have great burgers, though.
